If April showers bring May flowers, then January Apparel Market brings an array of Spring prints. The 2015 collections offer myriad options, from bold to subtle to ensure there’s an option to suit any style.
One key look – confirmed by Carson Kressley in his Market Faves – is mixing prints. Stripes and florals are one of the most popular combos but we also spotted stripes and polka dots as well as mini florals with gingham checks.
Florals are perennial favorites for spring and summer, but each year, the scale and implementation changes creating a fresh look. This season, no one look dominates. Stripes created from florals are one look, while watercolor prints offer another and updated takes on traditional toile are yet another.
When mixing prints in an outfit, remember to consider both color and scale to avoid ending up with a look that’s more haphazard hobo than trendy chic.
Check out all these styles – and more – at the next Atlanta Apparel Market, March 19-23, 2015.
